In September, heads of state are going to New York City for a historic summit on climate change. With our future on the line, we will take a weekend and use it to bend the course of history.
This moment will not be just about New York or the United States. Heads of state from around the world will be there, as will the attention of global media. We know that no single meeting or summit will “solve climate change” and in many ways this moment will not even really be about the summit.
We want this moment to be about us – the people who are standing up in our communities, to organize, to build power, and to shift power to a just, safe, peaceful world.
To do that, we need to act – together.
So join the Peoples Climate March in Lagos on Monday, September 22nd in Lagos. The rally will culminate in a public gathering at Alausa – calling on our President to commit to a strong climate change treaty in the New York. Several organizations have endorsed the March and will be sending representatives to participate.
We want to send a clear signal to the President and our current Government, the time is here and now and the people demand urgent action on Climate Change.
The goals of this mobilization include:
To show turnout before a state executives,
Public advocacy on climate change,
Present our petition to the Executive Governor of Lagos State
March in solidarity with the Peoples Climate March taking place simultaneously in New York, Paris and Rio.
